Russell Wilson steps up to stamp out talLike a good leader, Ru sell Wilson is there. Faced with speculation of unrest in the Seattle Seahawks' locker room, Wilson stepped forward Thursday with a bucket of cold water."There's no division in our locker room," Wilson told the Seattle Times. "There's none at all. If anything, I think that we have continued to build, continued to grow. I truly believe that."Perhaps seeking smoke where there is no flame, one report this week said the Seahawks are a divided team. One clique backs Wilson, Darius Kilgo Jersey the quarterback in their Super Bowl victory. The other, the story goes, doesn't care to hustle for Ru sell.Why? Apparently, one player wrote, Wilson is too close to the front office and ... wait for it ... isn't black enough.Percy Harvin departed the mix in a trade to the New York Jets. No matter how talented he is, Harvin appears to have been a problem. He admitted this week he had incidents that involved fellow wideouts Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin.What is clear: The Seahawks were eager to dispose of Harvin. Chandler Jones Jersey At best a luxury item in their corps of talent, Harvin was shipped away last week despite the Seahawks having played a premium to get him and adding to the burden with Dominique Easley Jersey a fat contract. Another description: brawls.USA Today's Lorenzo Reyes breaks it down this way.That the Seahawks cut ties with Harvin so quickly they sent three draft picks, including a first-rounder, to Minnesota in order to obtain him in March 2013 before signing him to a six-year, $67 million contract illustrates how much the franchise's perception of him changed.Wilson told media members he and Harvin "never had differences. ... I'm not sure why the media tries to blow everything out of proportion. It's part of it, I gue s. You have to deal with it, but you have to ignore it, too."Safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor also pooh-poohed rumors of di sent among the Seahawks.Last week's face plant against the St. Louis Rams was the Seahawks' second consecutive lo s. This week they visit the Carolina Panthers. SN's David Steele calls this his "put up or shut up game of the week."Another lo s could produce more than smoke for a team trying to defend its championship with a reconfigured Tom Brady Jersey roster.
